Early Childhood Center


At Khartoum American School, the Early Childhood Department bases their instruction on The Creative Curriculum® program. This program utilizes the most current research and professional literature in the field of early childhood education.

The Creative Curriculum® is based on five fundamental principles. They guide practice and help us understand the reasons for intentionally setting up and operating early childhood programs in particular ways.

These are the principles:

  • · Positive interactions and relationships with adults provide a critical

foundation for successful learning.

  • · Social-emotional competence is a significant factor in school success.
  • · Constructive and purposeful play support essential learning.
  • · The physical environment affects the type and quality of learning


  • · Teacher-family partnership promotes development and learning.

The curriculum is divided into areas of development and learning.

  • · Social-Emotional

Content learning:
